About

Basil has been a seed we have wanted to use for many years. It was one of the first crops we grew when we began gardening in the 80's and as it tasted just like Basil when I was thinning our garden, it seemed like a great choice for a Micro-Green. Alas I found this extremely difficult to get flavor out of. I could get it to grow, but the Micros just had little flavor. I am a persistent guy though and eventually I found that it makes a huge difference what medium Basil is planted on. I get great crops and all the Basil flavor when growing on Coconut Coir. Though you can use other mediums - we do not recommend it. Coconut Coir is amazing stuff! I now plant everything on it and I get better crops than ever - especially when I mix in 20% Earthworm Castings.
